Ongoing Problem Burning

Recommended Posts

Is there any further information I can provide?

Only a disc quality scan of the disc that just failed to verify (as per the log in post # 45) - if your Asus supports it.

 

That's where I was heading with the last line of my previous post.

It might be worth doing a disk error scan on the drive where these failed images were.  You may have a dying HD or bad sectors.  The image could be being saved in these areas that are bad.  At least, that's a step I'd take.  Unless it's an SSD, which I don't think you're supposed to perform error scans on?  :unsure:

Here is a freshly burned scan of the "bad" image and the log.

With the "bad" image the scan is ALWAYS 77. With the "good" image (bad image re-ripped through a virtual drive), the scan is ALWAYS 95. ??? Verify fails on every drive I've tried only with this image. I can provide the 95 scan as well.

No disk integrity problems confirmed through Windows verification and SMART.

Yeah, it appears to have been a random hiccup.  Something in memory interfered with the writing of the image file.  Could have been AV software that did it.  It was so random that the image integrity was good enough to burn but the actual data was corrupted.  I've randomly encountered that a few times.  If I get bad burns from the same image file on 2 different burners, then I try recreating the image to see if that helps.  If it still doesn't, then I isolate the possibility of the discs being bad in the entire cake stack.  Or the incredibly random possibility that both drives failed at the same time.  After I've done, of course, partition image restore tests of Windows to a point where I know burning discs worked first.  Yes, lots of debugging work, sometimes.  :rolleyes:

Another interesting note, I've been getting better burns (scanning at around 95) with the 2011 Matsushita UJ-8A8 drive in my notebook than with the brand new ASUS DRW-24B3ST (scanning at around 90). Discs are scanned on the ASUS because it's the only drive that supports scanning. Perhaps age and form are not the only factors.

Just an update, burning discs with the slimline 2011 Matsushita UJ-8A8 drive in my MacBook produces excellent burns that never skip and scan very well. The new ASUS DRW-24B3ST produces poorer burns that do skip. I've resolved this thread's problem, at least until the slimline drive fails. It appears new DVD-only optical drives are trash.

It seems ASUS internal models may very well be junk.  My first ASUS was an external BD that passed every single media test I threw at it.  Playback of all media also passed.  So, I had high hopes for my first internal ASUS BD drive.  BIG mistake.  The drive was junk.  Doesn't write to rewritable media correctly.  In fact, it destroys rewritable media once written so that it can't be used anymore!  :angry:  I tried a 2nd unit of the same model and it did the same thing, so it's the drive, not just the one unit I got that may have been faulty.  It's a design flaw.
